of the two suspects who stayed to watch the carnage before casually walking away. joining me is jim maxwell, retired fbi agent and also bob baer, bill gavin and cnn national security analyst, fran townsend. we'll bring back assistant director of the fbi, chris swecker. let me start with you, jim maxwell, since you're here. you're a retired special agent who specialized in the bomb area. this is the kind of bomb that we're talking about, a pressure cooker. fairly crude device but in this case, extremely effectively executed. what do you make of the development today with the two suspects given that it clearly shows a team? >> yes. this type of device basically, based on what i've seen so far, would be used to deliver low explosives, something that moves 3300 feet per second, less than that amount. and this device is popular for low explosives, the common vessel would be a pipe bomb. well, in this particular case, they decided to use this kind of vessel and what it does is it allows low explosives to build up pressure inside the vessel and then it will increase the potency of the explosion by
now. u.s. remember at the beginning of the iraq war, jim asked me a question, does this still hold true today? do movie stars need be afraid to speak out? and i would say, yes. the lesson is, if what you care about is your pocketbook, if you want to speak out and be pro patriotic and defend america right or wrong, you'll never get in trouble. if you want to be critical of foreign policy because you belief, as a citizen -- remember, we have a thing called the constitution. all men are created equal. everybody, at least from the beginning, white, male, 2 1, with property, could vote. since then we've expanded -- well, i'm not being sarcastic because in terms of the world to have any white male who was sovereign, that we were sovereign. the american revolution declared the people sovereign rather than a king or queen. you couldn't have a king or queen taking your land away because they had finch it to you through sovereign rights. so if every citizen has a right to say what they should or should not do in our government, we would think we could respect that, and yet at the very begi
